Summary

With a “great location on the clifftop”, this “rather sophisticated” venue offers “first-rate” (if rather “pricey”) seafood dishes by chef Pierre Chevillard; it’s especially nice when you can “sit outside, overlooking the Solent”.

Summary

Not only “spectacular views across the Solent” make this “consistently good” cliff-top spot a major hit with reporters (especially those who dine al fresco); head chef Pierre Chevillard is “simply superb with fish”, and prices are relatively “affordable” too; a downside? – the interior is too ’80s for some tastes.
